The month of December can be a hectic time with New Year right around the corner and holidays in the midst. With hectic schedules and planning galore some may hastily notice the darker winter days while others may not even notice. For us, the earlier sunset and dark before you even get off work days sometimes coincide with less time for the fun outdoors. Fewer hiking/camping/fishing days and less sunlight can have a huge impact on those outdoor lovers – like us!
The holidays are right around the corner along with party planning and holiday vacations! Having friends and family home for the season can be such a fun time with warm food and delicious beverages. If you will be the host of the gathering, preparing a fun cocktail menu can be a fun way to spice up the evening. Gather the ingredients for a few alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages so everyone can enjoy the holiday spirit!
Thanksgiving with the family is a special time to catch up and re-connect with those you don’t see often. Whether you get to spend a whole week together or just a special day or two, making memories and being together is what counts! Hanging out by the fire or - our favorite - enjoying the outdoors with an adventurous hike or a kayaking day down the local river are perfect options! Not everything you're used to will suit younger ages though. If you're looking for something to entertain your visiting little nephews and nieces, try some of these fun ideas to get the party going!!
